What a wonderful place to send my two kids. Kids are challenged and engaged at every level. They are learning so much more than math facts and sight words. They are learning to be enthusiastic lifelong learners. What more could I ask for?

We've been at Bill Roberts six years, since my oldest was 2! It's a wonderful community of parents and the teachers are of the highest caliber! We couldn't be happier with our children's education.

We moved to Bill Roberts from another DPS school at the beginning of this school year and we're amazed by the differences. A totally engaged community, wonderful teachers who embrace communication, and a well-rounded academic program make this a standout school. We're happy to be here.

My school is an amazing learning and leadership environment for my child. The school gives students the tools they need to become independent, individual, academic and social leaders. The teachers here are the best and truly care about the growth of each child. The schools and classrooms provide unique learning environments set up for every child to succeed. The approach of K-8 is embraced by all and therefore the model excels in its unique approach to help kids excel and prepare for success in high school and beyond.

Bill Roberts is a wonderful school. We selected it for Advanced Kindergarten and stayed for the great teachers, incredible library programs, art, drama and music. The paras and all support staff are exceptional. Extra effort and achievement are encouraged and recognized. Truly a community school.

This is my son's second year at Bill Roberts. I could not be more happy with the thoughtful and caring teachers he has had. He loves to go to school everyday and truly enjoys learning because of the supportive and nurturing environment the leadership and teachers have created. The principal is such a gem too, it is clear how much she cares about the academic progress and emotional well-being of the students.

We have been a part of the Bill Roberts Community for 6 years and our eldest will continue on through middle school. It has been such a positive experience for all of us - from the principal and administrative staff on down to the teachers and paras. It is truly the experience we invisioned for our children - challenging, nuturing and all inclusive. Our children are happy and thriving ...what more could a parent want for them?

Bill Roberts is our school of choice and our neighborhood school. We have been there for 6 years with a middle school student and a younger student. We have been impressed with the instruction, individualization and professionalism at the school. The Friday afternoon PLC has truly unified the school. Staff work on being better teachers and educators, hence helping our children reach their learning potential. They are addressing cutting edge, "best practices" approaches to education. The principle provides good leadership and vision of excellence for the staff and students. In addition, the preschool through 8th grade model is magical! All the teachers know all middle school students and their parents. It is more individualized than most middle schools. The students know one another very well and learn to get along with one another, regardless of background. Middle schoolers generally act much nicer, supportive, caring and helpful when constantly around younger students. Our middle schoolers aren't trying to be high schoolers at 12, they act their age and are helpful to the rest of the school.

We have been a part of the Bill Roberts community for 5 years, ECE-3 - second grade. Every school has its challenges and Bill Roberts is no exception - it has supported the tremendous growth of the Stapleton community, while maintaining its focus on growing the whole child. Beyond the amazing teachers, we have an award winning library, upgraded technology to support education, lots of specials and enrichment activities, all kids get weekly Spanish, an amazing holiday outreach, a spring art show, a community 5k fund raiser, a spring carnival, ... just to name a few of my family's favorite things!

We have had eight teachers, plus all of the specials teachers, and I am impressed and grateful every day for their creativity, energy, intelligence and true caring. We love the sense of community at this school and have seen each of our three children's needs met for advanced education.

My school is a classic K-8 with very good teachers and community. It provides continuity for my kids all the way to 8th grade when everything else changes rapidly in their world.

My 3 kids have been at Bill Roberts from ECE through middle school. While no school is for everyone, I have found my kids' experience at Bill Roberts to be outstanding. The teachers are stellar, and the entire staff, administration and teachers, is always working hard to make the school even better for its students, and that includes the middle school. I find the school's focus on the development of the whole child particularly effective at preparing its students for high school and life after Bill Roberts.

I have a kindergartner and student in ECE at William Bill Roberts K-8 School and I could not be more pleased with a school. The teachers have always gone above and beyond for my children. I even had an experience where my kids was getting made fun of and the principal stepped right in (without me asking) and solved the issue. I think your children would be very happy at this school.

William Roberts Middle School has been an exceptional experience for my child. After transferring from another middle school, we feel lucky to be here. My child feels safe and is growing academically. He loves his classes and teachers. My neighbor went to Roberts and is now taking honors classes as a freshman in high school.

The elementary and 6th grade part of the school is good but the 7th and 8th grade part is terrible. The kids never get extra help in the subjects they struggle with and the teachers don't treat the kids that well. There are always fights and bullying going on. The school also does not do a very good job preparing kids for highschool. The school also only cares about test scores and tcap. The students who struggle also get made fun of by teachers. Honestly the middle school part of the school needs some work and maybe more professional teachers.

I am the parent of a middle schooler at Bill Roberts. I can't imagine a finer middle school experience for a student or parent who wants a small school environment with many of the options of a comprehensive high school. As an educator myself, I am impressed by the teachers' depth of knowledge and their ability to create rigorous and engaging lessons. The middle school is primarily project based and places a lot of the onus on students for their learning. My son is identified as both gifted and on an IEP. I have found the special education teacher to be exemplary. She gets middle schoolers and knows how to relate to them. I am positive that she is one of the top special educators in DPS. Additionally, the teachers and the focus on project-based learning is right in the wheelhouse of gifted students. In addition to the school providing an excellent education, they provide many opportunities for students to be well-rounded learners through their extracurricular and enrichment activities. There are plenty of clubs and sports for students to join as well. My husband and I wish that we could have attended a middle school as engaging as Bill Roberts.

I am the parent of a new kindergartner. The teachers are awesome and very easy to communicate. We can get all the information in time either from the class website or by emails. I also love the school uniform policy to make us survive in the crazy busy morning, especially when you have 2 girls. Thanks, Bill Roberts!

Amazing teachers. Parental involvement. Nice kids. This is truly a neighborhood school. My kids have been there for three years and I couldn't be happier.

The administration of the school has taken the school in a new direction that is not necessarily in the best interest of the students. The primary focus at the school is keeping test scores high at the expense of student creativity and expression. This school could be so much more based on the population of kids who attend the school. The administration has instead focused on new rigid school policies and a uniform policy to promote equality in a school full of middle class white kids. Many of the teachers are leaving the school next year to teach at other schools, some of which were the most talented innovative teachers at the school, because the administration drove them out of the school. The school has become a top down model which has had a negative impact on school environment and overall teacher satisfaction. I wish the school administration worried more about inspiring student creativity, school safety (the drop off situation at the school is dangerous) and a positive work environment for the teachers. Test score aren't everything people. These kids will always have high test scores w/o the need to pile on the homework and rote practice. They can be so much more.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
